We often fell ill while travelling. Generally due to change in environment, exertion and not getting proper care or rest of body. So, we must have some knowledge of good hospitals in the city or country we are travelling.
Here are top hospitals you must know about-
BNH began life as a nursing home for British and other expatriates in Thailand in the late 1800s. A lot has changed since then but the modern-day BNH you see today was established in 1991 to provide high-end, international standard care to the domestic and international market.
The concept of ‘care’ is really impressive at BNH, with the waiting rooms designed like comfortable living spaces, while the highly trained staff ensure everything is very professionally run. The hospital is located on Soi Convent, between Silom and Sathorn roads.
